Love. It's the most powerful thing in the world. It can bring such enormous joy and excitement or terrible emotional pain. It can cause wars or babies, born. Whatever the case, we know that love teaches and heals, if we allow it to.
Many years ago, as many of you know, I met my love, Misty, in high school. We were so happy with one another, and then my life and brain changed, and I became a real jerk. We parted ways. We tried a second time a few years later, but I was still a jerk. We parted again. Then, many years later, she gave me another shot. I had finally grown up in certain ways, and we remain happy together to this day.
When you find that real love, don't take it for granted. Embrace it, treasure it, and hold onto it. You may not be as lucky as I was, and you may not get a second chance...or two...
